The Evo is a full on trail bike with really great climbing capabilities. Pretty much the perfect sweet spot for trails and Enduro racing here in SA. The Enduro on the other hand is really a very large beast, made to point down in extremely steep and technical terrain. I was very surprised as to how well it still climbs though, I really loved riding it and it made square hits and braking bumps feel like you are going for a road ride but personally it is just too much bike for 99% of the trails we have here in Cape Town. So no, two very different bikes, each having a dedicated place. Do agree that the models they are bringing in is a bit stupid, most probably a supply issue with covid globally as the SA market is still pretty much just about the racing snakes and their epics.
